EMF radiation from mobile phones and wi-fi a health risk, say scientists
About the author: 

A group of scientists is appealing to the United Nations and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to initiate tougher guidelines on exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and wireless technology

A group of scientists is appealing to the United Nations and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to initiate tougher guidelines on exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and wireless technology. They say there is growing evidence that EMFs are a risk to health and the environment.

The 190 scientists from 39 countries are calling for the introduction of precautionary measures, limit EMF exposure, especially for children and pregnant women, and to educate the public about health risks from EMFs, which are mainly generated from mobile phones and cell masts, wi fi and cordless phones.

They also wants the UN, the WHO and UN member states to explore the possible impact of EMFs on wildlife and the environment.

The International EMF Scientist Appeal points out that the WHO should already be issuing warnings. The WHO's own research committee listed EMF radiation as a 'possible carcinogen' in 2011, but has done nothing with the finding. Instead, it follows the guidelines of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), which has stated there is no evidence that EMFs and mobile phones pose any risk to health. The commission is mainly made up of personnel from the mobile phone industry.

One of the scientists, Martin Blank from Columbia University in the US, says: "International exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields must be strengthened to reflect the reality of their impact on our bodies, especially on our DNA. The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. We must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines."
